commander in chief, president barack obama. [applause] >> thank you. please be seated. in the years between the world wars, a young married couple in italy packed up what few belongings that they had and boarded a boat for a new world. they passed under the statute of liberty, and went through the lines of ellis island. carmelo and cramelina panetta had no money and spoke little english. but they had a dream of a better life. they worked hard. they went west to california. they started a family and taught their sons that if they studied and worked, if they gave back to this country, that they too could share in the american dream, so today we pay tribute to their son, leon panetta, a man who has not simply lived up to the american dream, but has helped to protect it for all of us. leon, our presence here today, members of congress, deputy secretary carter, general dempsy, and members of the joint chiefs, service secretaries, and the men and women of the greatest military that the world has ever known, all this is a reflection of our personal appreciation to you and the gratitude of a nation

. >> host: >> guest: thanks. i'll say a couple things about that. i do think president obama has used rhetoric, which is outside the bounds of the rhetoric normally referring to republicans of slander of society, putting party ahead of country, wanting autistic in down syndrome children, not supporting medical research, not supporting programs of younger children and goes on and on and away they and on with this unusual and unfortunate for a president to do. i do think demonization in the presidential is like anything we've seen in a long time. secondly, there's just no doubt about that. it is more supportive of president obama in the democratic party message now has to spend any time i could recall. i think as a general matter the republicans have to accept the media by and large his liberal. you have to accept the make your way through it. i do think the 60 minutes interview with president upon a couple weeks ago was brilliant take it. if you compare how 60 minutes interviews president obama and president of bush's are hostile to republicans and conservatives. having settled that, r

. mike, great to see you, big story today. thank you. >> thank you. jon: so for more on president obama's effort to unite senate democrats to help push through through his second term agenda, let's bring in our man juan williams. he is a fox news political analyst. what is going on hine closed doors? is this a little arm-twisting by the white house? what is this exactly, juan? >> it is arm-twisting, jon because right now the president is trying to get democrats in line for an alternative plan for spending cuts and some tax hikes that would avoid the sequestration set to hit march 1st. the idea here, jon, is that the economy is pretty fragile. we know from the end of last year when defense cuts took effect it had the effect much dragging down the economy during that last quarter. so the president wants to avoid that. he is saying we can't simply cut our way to growth. we have to have some investments in spending, for education and defense, for example. but he wants the democrats to come up with an alternative to this strong, across the board sequestration cut. jon: chris stirewalt pointe

, jay carney -- [laughter] to take those questions. thank you, everybody. [captioning performed by national captioning institute] [captions copyright national cable satellite corp. 2013] >> a story on the politico shows some of the reaction to president obama's budget cuts, saying that the plan appears to be dead on arrival. the house armed services committee is quoted as saying, "i am flabbergasted. until the president addresses the real problem, he is just whistling in the wind." the story goes on to say that this was the latest salvo in the never ending fiscal battles. this latest offensive lacks the urgency of the compromise, and congressional publicans are no longer in a compromising mood on taxes. there was another fiscal issue on the house floor today, on a measure that would require the president to submit a plan for balancing the budget to congress by april 1. a congressman of georgia is a sponsor of the legislation. here is some of that debate. wish it didn't come to this. president obama has a legal and a moral obligation to offer solutions to our fiscal challenges. s

recognizes the gentleman from california. mr. takano: thank you, madam chair. madam chair, i'd like to call this the don't shift blame amendment. the bill before us today tries to blame president obama for all our fiscal woes. judging by the language of this legislation, i'm convinced that house republicans live in a world where our entire national debt suddenly appeared on january 21, 2009. but let's be clear. our debt was not created by the president alone, and while the president may be responsible for sending us a budget blueprint, it is ultimately congress that holds the power of the purse. i think my colleagues on the other side of the aisle are forgetting a key part of our job. the president does not pass budget, nor does he appropriate funds. congress does. my amendment makes a simple change to the finding section of the bill that clarifies that congress has the constitutional responsibility to fund the federal government. now, i can guarantee that when the majority introduces its budget this month it will be so extreme that it has no chance of passing both houses. the republican ma
